Woman Wednesday: Megs

Q and A with Megs, New South Wales, South of Sydney, Australia

“Your body is your gateway to your intuition and abundance. Let your body guide you.”


Q: What are you passionate about? 

A: I am passionate about connecting to women and connecting them to their bodies and their intuition. I also help them to feel safe in their body and in abundance. I use psychic and mediumship to feel into what needs to shift in their reality to embody higher vibrations. I have been working on a free masterclass that is next week, also a program that is starting in October. It’s a type of psychic development program. I have been able to do readings for a long time, but COVID-19 made it into a career and I just love seeing women ascend and take charge of their frequency. It’s very empowering.


Q: What were your younger years like?

A: We were a normal middle-class Australian family. My dad passed away when I was 14. And after that, I had very vivid dreams about him.

I’ve had some kind of gift for my whole life, but I don’t really remember anything about it. My mum told me about it a few weeks ago that she’d always known that I would be doing something like this [readings]. Apparently, it amplified after my dad’s passing, but again, I don’t remember. I found out I was an empath after going to a psychologist a few years ago and went to a psychic development course about six years ago and was great at it but resisted it for all that time and really started doing it again because I felt like something was missing and I kept thinking about doing it. So, I gave in and surrendered to it and once I started listening to spirit and letting them guide me on my next aligned step I started to grow and heal myself while helping others to grow and heal. Coming home to their bodies where they can tap deep into their intuition and feel safe in abundance.


Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?

A: I would have to say I was doing all this for over a year before I started to make a big impact. I launched so many programs and products that never seemed to take off. Once I simplified my offerings and came home to my body and my intuition, things really started to move. One exercise that I did that had a big impact on me was sitting down and journaling about what makes me special and what I love about myself. Then I started to fall in love with myself. After that, I gained a ton of momentum and traction.

Surrendering to flow by listening to your body is super important to being a leader of any kind. Your body is your gateway to your intuition and abundance. Let your body guide you.


Q: What does feminism mean to you? 

A: Women stepping up and owning their power, loving themselves on a deep level, and shinning in multiple areas of life. Showing up as their authentic self without apology or the need for approval.

Woman Wednesday: Terri

Q and A with Terri from Korea, raised in Virginia, and living in Los Angeles, CA

“They’re just thoughts, yet we often let them define us, hold us back, shape our reality, etc.”


Q: What are you passionate about? 

A: I love marketing. Marketing and entrepreneurship is so fascinating to me. I love psychology and how it plays into marketing and sales. I love connecting brands with their customers and watching lives change because of it. I love helping people tell their story through marketing. It is definitely my gift. I also love to help people realize their potential. I love to help them see a new perspective that assists in their elevation. I’m always going to work with entrepreneurs and businesses, but I do have a new project I’m working on that’s for kids and I am beyond excited. I cannot wait to share more of it!


Q: What were your younger years like?

A: My younger years definitely shaped who I am today. My mom is Korean and my dad is black, so I grew up navigating two cultures. For me growing up biracial was the best thing ever. I was always proud of both sides of me, and I could fit in anywhere and get along with everyone. I believe it also help me understand others more because I was exposed to so many different cultures very young. I am the first in my immediate family to go to college and become a business owner. I think the best thing about my childhood is I always marched to the beat of my own drum, and I had the will inside me to never give up. There’s always a way. I see how that helps me now as an adult and I’m grateful for that.


Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?

A: Learn to think your thoughts. We don’t realize how many thoughts we think that don’t serve us. They’re just thoughts, yet we often let them define us, hold us back, shape our reality, etc. Mental health and strength must be learned, as well as emotional intelligence. When you learn to think your thoughts and move with only what serves your highest good, you will feel a peace inside that compares to nothing else in the world. When you find that true connection within, you feel whole and loved! It takes practice, but it is is so worth it!


Q: What does feminism mean to you? 

A: To be bold and brave and be whoever it is you want to be, unapologetically.

Woman Wednesday: Hanah H.

Q and A with Hanah H., Indianapolis, Indiana

“We get to determine what our success looks like because we have control of our life.”


Q: What are you passionate about? 

A: I’m most passionate about being a mama and wife while creating a better life for my family. I’ve always known that I wanted to be a mom, but I also knew that I didn’t want to have to send our kiddos to day care or live off a single income. That’s when I started a virtual assistant business so that I could be a work-from-home mom and have time and financial freedom. But I soon realized that I was still trading time for money and providing this type of service would never help my family reach the time and financial freedom I so wanted. So, I shifted my business into freelance writing and earned 20x my income within the first two months while working fewer hours (for real, I’ve done the math on this a dozen times). Finally, I was able to start building the life of my dreams because I finally had control over my own life. After creating success in freelance writing, I became passionate about helping others ditch the overworked and underpaid lifestyle by building their own freelance writing businesses. It’s my mission to guide people along the exact roadmap to becoming a freelance writer. I’ve held nothing back in my course Freelance Writing with Hanah Harvey.


Q: What were your younger years like?

A: I grew up in the suburbs of Indianapolis and went to a small school where I met my husband during sophomore year. He had somehow moved all the way from England and landed in our class with only 15 people. Talk about meant to be. We grew up together and rode the roller coaster of life, both settling into the mentality that hard work equals success. Working overtime and having money in the bank means you are successful…even if you don’t have enough time to do anything with that money.

That’s when my husband said the sort-of-blunt mantra we now live by: “If you don’t like it, change it.” And all of a sudden, we realized that working 60-70 hours a week wasn’t what we wanted out of life, so we changed it. September 2021 marks 11 years of togetherness and learning to do life on our own terms because we now understand that we get to determine what our success looks like because we have control of our life.


Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?

A: This might sound harsh, but it’s a game changer: If you don’t like it, change it. If you are unhappy with where you are at in life, whether that be work, location, finances, or how you’re spending your time…then change it. You can have control over your life, you just have to choose it. I’ve been there, stuck in the rat race trying to find my place in this world. It’s when I truly understood that I get to define what success looks like for me and I get to control my life that I was really able to make the changes, and becoming a freelance writer was exactly what I needed.


Q: What does feminism mean to you? 

A: To me, feminism is not only a movement, but a right for women to be able to live life how they want to live. To leave behind what society says they have to do and create a life on their own terms. Whether they go into politics, medicine, construction, or being a stay-at-home mom, women get to choose that for themselves. I’ve spent a lot of my life proving so that I can keep up with the guys, and I’m not less than just because I’m a woman. It means so much more to me now that I have a daughter. I will fight tooth and nail to make sure she has equal opportunities and isn’t boxed into a corner just because she was born a she.

So, how did I actually create time, location, and financial freedom for my family? I created a stable and profitable freelance writing business, and I’m giving away all my secrets. Freelance Writing with Hanah Harvey is my signature program that is the exact process I used to build a freelance writing business that let’s me go to the zoo on a random Wednesday, never again have to request time off to spend with my family, and allows my family to have financial freedom.

Wondering if Freelance Writing is for you? I’ve created a free, four-part training series that will walk you through how freelance writing can change your life, if freelance writing is for you, what you do and don’t need, and how to create stability and wealth.

Woman Wednesday: Stephanie

Q and A with Stephanie, Washington, U.S.

“I always find myself coaching and connecting with truly exceptional people–people who have challenged society’s expectations of them, have risen to the call they hear deep within, and are committed to creating their own story.”


Q: What are you passionate about? 

A: I’m passionate about self confidence and self trust…that each woman can have a safe and supportive space inside her own head. A big part of my work is helping my clients discover and release the expectations that were placed on them by society that no longer serves their dreams and goals. I believe very strongly that this foundation must be laid first, before goal setting and accountability come into play. That’s why my coaching offer starts with self talk before going on to clarity, accountability, and self-coaching, which are the other pillars of my program. By the end of my 12-week program, my clients get to experience that supportive space in their heads, know what they actually want out of life, and are moving toward that next big goal, and finally have the self-coaching skills to independently get themselves through the places that they get stuck mentally or emotionally. It all has to start with changing the inner dialogue to create the internal confidence and framework for success. To find out more about my coaching offer, or to connect with a community on your growth journey join my Facebook group here: facebook.com/groups/createyourpower. This is the only way to to experience a coaching call for free as well.


Q: What were your younger years like?

A: I had a very interesting childhood to say the least. Until I was nine, I grew up on a farm, homeschooled. I spent my days frolicking in the fields with the goats and making mud pies. Suddenly, our family moved to Tbilisi, Georgia, half way across the world, to a city of 2 million people. That was hard, but reentry to the United States was equally hard, as we didn’t move back “home,” but instead moved to a small village in Alaska. This left me with the experience of being an ‘outsider’ in multiple different life circumstances. It was messy, but I became an observer of the cultural framework that many people see as ‘the only way,’ and I stood apart from it, noticing the beauty as well as the pain that the particular framework brings with it. At the same time, I had to learn to see my own biases for what they were and continually grow to a more expansive understanding of the world around me. These experiences laid the foundation for the coaching work I do today–standing outside a person’s experience, observing it, but also empathizing with it.


Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?

A: If there was one thing I’d love for people to learn from my story, it would be to notice that the assumptions you have that might sound like fact may actually be just one way of seeing the world. For example, maybe you learned that if a person is late, it’s because they don’t respect your time. Ask yourself, “What if I actually had something really beautiful to learn about time from someone who is perpetually late? What if they are honoring me in a way I never even considered?” Before I began my career in life coaching, I was a Salvation Army Officer, which gave me the opportunity to manage a local service for social services and spiritual development. This included leading the teams that provided weekly community meals, funding assistance, youth and women’s programs, day camps, and assistance for the unhoused. What I loved about being in leadership was the one-on-one connections and the opportunity to hear people’s stories and walk with them in their journeys. In the same day, I might find myself walking alongside an unhoused single mother, as well as the CEO of a company or a representative of local government. Every person’s story is sacred, and I always find myself coaching and connecting with truly exceptional people–people who have challenged society’s expectations of them, have risen to the call they hear deep within, and are committed to creating their own story. If this is you, I’d LOVE to hear your story. Email me at stephanigalindocoaching@gmail.com.


Q: What does feminism mean to you? 

A: For me, pragmatic feminism can be seen in how I raise my boys–to recognize injustice, to embrace the nurturing side of themselves, and to understand consent. As they get older, I will continue to learn new ways to teach equity, so that they can be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.

Also, I’m a boy mama, and my boys are currently seven and four years old. I have raised them with a deep acceptance of emotions and a value for gentleness.

Woman Wednesday: Courtney B.

Q and A with Courtney from Walla Walla, WA, living in Charlotte, NC

“Logic would have never told me to quit my stable job, sell everything, and move to a country where I had no job and didn’t know anyone, but it was the most life-changing experience of my entire life.”


Q: What are you passionate about? 

A: My biggest passion in life is travel. When I was 10 years old, my grandparents took me on a trip for eight weeks to Washington State, Oregon, California, Utah, Arizona, and Idaho. It was my first taste of true adventure, seeing that things could be different from my small town I grew up in and that there was so much more to see. It sparked a love of freedom, travel, and adventure inside of me. I have been to 30 countries so far, and I’m always looking to explore more! I was in Corporate America for 16 years. I recently left to go full time in my coaching business. I support women in taking their side hustle from broke to bank! We create a side hustle that can support them full time so they can create a life they truly love. I absolutely love what I do and am so excited to wake up with passion and do this amazing work! I feel truly blessed that I was willing to go for and see what I have been able to create. I have a new course coming out called DECIDE. It is all about how one decision can change your entire life. When you decide you are a traveler, travel shows up. When you decide you are successful, success shows up. When you decide you are a home owner, a home can show up. It is up to you to make the decision to change your life!


Q: What were your younger years like?

A: I grew up in a small town with teenage parents. Neither of my parents went to college when I was younger. They have both gotten their two-year degrees now. I was the first person in my family to get a four-year degree and the only person to get my master’s degree. I felt like education was my key to getting out of the lower-middle class, small town living. I learned more, hoping it would make me happy and increase my income. Working in corporate made me so miserable, and I felt so trapped. I felt like I would never get out. I felt so stuck. I didn’t know how life could be different. I listened to my intuition. I quit my corporate job in HR, sold everything I owned, and moved to New Zealand for a year. It was the most epic, life-changing experience of my life. Once I finished my visa there, I backpacked through Southeast Asia for three months. Then I came home with no idea what to do next. I couldn’t find a job and fell into network marketing. While that was not my passion or my final destination, I found my passion in helping women create a life of freedom and abundance. Through that, my business was born. I can see how the way I grew up shaped me to be exactly who I needed to be today.


Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?

A: Follow your passion. Quit that job. Get your passport. Move to that new city. Listen to your intuition. Logic will always be there, but logic comes from the stories of others. Not our soul passions or desires. Logic would have never told me to quit my stable job, sell everything, and move to a country where I had no job and didn’t know anyone, but it was the most life-changing experience of my entire life. Tap into what you want out of life. It is short. And stop living to make others happy.


Q: What does feminism mean to you? 

A: Feminism means, to me, allowing yourself to trust yourself. As women, we are taught to not let our emotions get in the way. Your emotions are your key to manifesting. Allow yourself to love them! To tap into them. Use them as your guiding force. Your emotions are your power!
